My only warning/suggestion is to avoid the lighter colors in heat gear, e.g white or yellow. When stretched these colors reveal way too much visual detail of nipples and chest hair for my personal comfort. Cold gear is thicker and doesn't have this problem.
Some friends are reluctant to use the compression fit because they feel it draws attention to excess body fat on the torso. Luckily, most runners aren't plagued with excess body fat but do experience nipple chafe. This is the solution!
I am into competitive eventing (equestrian sports) and love wearing the suitable thickness of UnderArmour shirt on competitions or cross country training as a single layer. In long sleeve version, it protects against branches hitting your skin, light abrasions and dries in a whisk. You NEVER get wet or dry up instantly, summer or winter, rain or sunshine. Competitive riding is an all weather and every day test, not only for clothes, and Under Armour passes it with flying colours, whichever colour you choose. A jacket as single outer layer will suffice for a warm up, after which you can happily wear it as a single layer.
The quality of the fabric is superb and stays well over many washing cycles. I always wash them luke warm, in fear of shrinkage, and am not so happy with the fabric retaining some odour at these washing temperatures. Also I must confess that I feel the Coldgear stuff is a bit stiffer, less stretchy than the light and thin Heatgear, especially the model with the "metallic" surface. The result is that it pulls up your back easier, exposing your lower back to the elements. Also I ran into a sale of a "Nike factory store", which on that day only, sold "Nike Fit" underwear. Strikingly similar to the Under Armour Heatgear it was at less than half the price. Not bad either, but not quite the same quality. Good second choice but a second choice.
Unless my head has grown dramatically over the last year (I have been reading a lot of books), the neck opening on the HeatGear top is much smaller and less stretchy than its ColdGear cousin. Once I finally did manage to weasel my noggin' through the hole (I felt like I was being birthed by some supernatural nylon being), I found the sleeves to be loose-fitting and a bit long. I looked more like a sporty medieval peasant in a polyester smock than a serious athlete whose cooling properties needed enhancing.
Under Armor was very helpful and gladly accepted my return. I will stick to the CoolGear product for now; snug fit and great water-wicking capabilities keep my temperature regulated across a variety of climates.
It is not completely smell-proof, but it is greatly, greatly reduced. I mean, you will smell something only if you put the T-shirt on your nose after you finished your training, but apart from that you won't even notice it. I have worn this T-shirt even when wearing suits and it feels great now that we are approaching summer.
It is long, so it will go below your waist line and probably roll up a bit, but it didn't really bother me. I usually wash it by hand and it seems to be Ok, in that way I get rid of the sweat as soon as possible.
I hope this helps.

So they deleted my review before. I'm going to say again that this shirt will last you a month tops and then it's going to start falling apart. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Tom
